Archer and his crew have taken over the Defiant and soon find out the firepower of the vessel. The Tholian ships have no chance whatsoever. There's still one problem as there seems to be a saboteur on board. Two warp regulators are stolen and Kelby is found with a reptilian bite. After Archer takes care of the problem, the Enterprise travels back into familiar space. They interfere in a battle between the rebels and the Empire. Only the Avenger is left and Captain Archer has no trouble saving it. Admiral Blake is on board and is impressed by the ship. Archer gets the idea he isn't the one who will gain the credits for this victory and once again decides to take the matter into his own hands. Written by

Amongst the items of note when Archer & Sato look up 'Jonathan Archer' in the Defiant's records were 'historian John Gill called Archer the 'greatest exporter of the 22nd century.' The character of John Gill is from the Star Trek Episode, Patterns of Force, in which cultural observer/professor John Gill defies the 'no interference' edict of the Federation, & rather than just being a 'cultural observer,' ends up becoming 'the Fuhrer' of the Ekosians.

Perhaps it was a pet, owned by one of the original crew.
Unless one of them owned a velociraptor, I find it extremely unlikely.
The opening sequence is replaced with footage of various battles and a different theme song to reflect the fact that this is an alternate universe in which the Terrans are a warlike species. See more
